One more. This is the photographer, Calvin who assisted me for this portrait session. For my self portrait, I set up the camera, did the framing, chose the aperture annd shutter speed after metering him as the stand in. I also did the coarse focus, and he did the final fine focus as I switched places with him and became the sitter. He loaded the film and fired the shutter. Same camera, lens, film, development in the same Stearmann Press tank, and scans.

EBONY RSW + NIKON NIKKOR 90/8 + CATLABS FILM X 80 II (colorized) / 510 PYRO (semi-stand)

I enjoy colorizing some of my B&W film images with a Wacom Pen and PS.
The CatLabs Film X 80 II film was tried on a whim because I could not find any user reviews.
The above film was shot at box speed (okay) plus another sheet at one stop more (in case of film damage, etc.).
Lots of green dye in the prewash of 2-two minute gentle agitation baths with a three-minute soak in between.
The location is Micanopy, FL, where it was 99℉ but beautiful.

I hope everyone is doing well.
Something about the colorizing makes this seem even more real than if it were originally in color. I don't know why. It's really cool.
